1-night camping experience

One thing I love about camping is connecting with nature. I love the singing of birds, the flowing sounds of the river, and the green trees providing fresh air. 

Camping alone has given me a special experience to see how much attachment I have towards myself.  I have found that one of the best ways to read the book is while camping, it is very peaceful.

I have also found that it is a beautiful experience to meditate while camping. The air is fresh and cool, making me alert. The sound of the river is helping me to concentrate and also giving me a sign of needing to meditate right now instead of later. 

I used to read books about Yogis before and in those books, Yogis used to tell that the river is one of the best friends of Yogis, after this camping, I have experienced this truth a little bit. 

Yogi Milarepa also said that the rocky mountains are the teachings that give sadness in the mind while meditating. This sadness is very precious since it helps to gain spiritual attainment and want to walk towards the path to enlightenment.   

Even though I just spent one-night camping, still I feel like I have got a tiny drop of this great blessing since I was camping near the rocky mountain.

When the night came, I have this feeling of strong attachment to myself. I was reading a book by a Tibetan Yogi Drigung Kagyu Kyopa Jigten Gonpo, I feel so blessed with his teachings telling me that attachment is the source of suffering. The book kept me strong in the night. It was like the lamp for the darkness. 

That was a brief story of my first-time alone camping experience, I would love to try this kind of solo camping more often soon so that I can be with nature and also to improve my spiritual path. One more thing, camping is also a great opportunity to witness the beauties of stars, sunrise, and sunset.

In Tibet, They are so many places that are great spots for camping. We recommend our 11-Day Ganden to Samye Trek and 20-Day Kangshung Valley Trek to all trek lovers.


Travelers can also check out our 12 Days Trek from Old Tingri to Mount Everest base camp. I have done the trek during the year 2005 with a few German Travelers. 

Trekking is the best way to see the true hidden beauties of Tibet. Fewer tourists and more locals. Trekking also allows us to be with nature completely. For more information regarding trekking in Tibet, Travelers can send us an Email. info@tibettravelers.com
